Share a mobile scene package

With mobile scene packages, you can share offline global scenes with the ArcGIS Runtime SDK 100.5 and later.

A mobile scene package consolidates scenes into a single .mspk file that can be shared with your ArcGIS organizational account or copied directly to your mobile device. Supported layer types in the scene and their data are included in the package. The mobile scene package is optimized for modern mobile devices and can run on any platform supported by ArcGIS Runtime SDK.


To allow users to open a mobile scene package without signing in to an ArcGIS organization, Enable Anonymous Use can be used if you have licensed ArcGIS Pro with the ArcGIS Publisher extension.
